(Nashville, Tenn. – Jan. 7, 2013) Country Radio Seminar has announced that a performance of country music’s most famous show, the Grand Ole Opry,
will kick-off CRS 2013 on Wednesday, February 27, 2013. The event will
be held inside the Performance Hall at the Nashville Convention Center.

Artists confirmed to perform are Grand Ole Opry members Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker and Vince Gill along with Dustin Lynch and Scotty McCreery
Additional performers will be released in the coming weeks.  The
two-hour event will commence at 7 p.m., immediately following the annual
CRS Artist/Attendee Welcome Reception. All CRS attendees can attend.

The Opry,
radio’s longest-running program, has only rarely staged shows outside
its regular program schedule and its permanent home (the Grand Ole Opry
House) or its winter residence (Ryman Auditorium). Past Opry
performances played outside the show’s home venues include performances
staged at prestigious theaters such as New York City’s Carnegie Hall and
the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

“Every week, the Grand Ole Opry showcases an unforgettable,
one-of-a-kind mix of country music’s new stars, superstars, and legends
for country music fans from around the world. We’re excited to deliver a
special show featuring some of radio’s biggest current hit-makers who
are also some of the most popular artists who visit our stage for all
our friends in country radio when CRS returns to town next month,” said
Opry Vice President and General Manager Pete Fisher.

The show is sponsored by Humana’s
My Well-Being.

Bill Mayne, CRS Executive Director, notes “This marks the first time in
the history of the seminar, which is over 40 years, that we welcome the
Grand Ole Opry to our stage. It has been a long time coming, but will
be well worth the wait,” adding, “My thanks to Pete Fisher and the Opry
staff for allowing me to present this show on the opening night of CRS
2013, as both events are such a great fit for each other.”
